Biography

THE RUMOURS
www.therumoursonline.com

In late 2001, Lou Rumour and Just Janelle were introduced to Melissa Starr via their mutual tattoo artist. Shortly thereafter the trio began jamming to escape the tedious perils of retail clothing sales.
The following spring, The Rumours made their debut on the Vancouver scene with countless sold out shows. By the end of their first year together, they had played an impressive list of high-profile shows with a diverse list of acts including Taking Back Sunday, the D4, Danko Jones, The Tea Party and Swollen Members.

Bridging doo wop, musicals, hair metal and hard rock influences, The Rumours blend intense, powerful vocals, spiraling guitars and pounding rhythms that continue to earn them press and praise from fans and industry alike. With the summer 2003 addition of sublimely talented drummer Steve Senyk, The Rumours are complete, and sounding better than ever!

As the recipients of Future Shop and Universal Music ‘Future Stars’ best unsigned band at Canadian Music Week 2003, The Rumours spent the fall recording their first full length album entitled “The Mighty Can Fall”. The band started 2004 on their first tour alongside Billy Talent and has since toured with Vanilla Ice. They plan to continue on the road throughout the coming months in support of their release on Switchblade Records/ Universal.

Lyrics

Fight

Written By: Lou Rumour/ Just Janelle/ Melissa Starr

Fight
So sweet, the taste of victory
It's here all through the night
You gotta put up a fight
Round and round and you know this cycle ends
In the clear, you're always first in line

You gotta do it right
If you're gonna do it

What's this thing you're running from today
did it save your life?
Would you do it all the same
Counting backwards, forwards down the line
And I know they said
That you missed a couple heads

Broke down the walls of destiny
Got tomorrow's battle in your sight
Well this one's gonna bite
I told you once, I told you twice before
The only one to count on is yourself

When you do it right
If you're gonna do it

What's this thing you're running from today
did it save your life?
Would you do it all the same
Counting backwards, forwards down the line
And I know they said
That you missed a couple heads

Why can't you see
That it's been
Never again, will these promises be left unbroken
Why don't you promise me

My only enemy
Fight

What's this thing you're running from today
did it save your life?
Would you do it all the same
Counting backwards, forwards down the line
And I know they said
That you missed a couple heads

Another Lie

Written By: Lou Rumour/ Just Janelle/ Melissa Starr

Another Lie
The story of the heart is cold I'm told
Again and again to pretend
That loves a hero it brings you gifts of gold
Then bleeds you sober and I am

I'm bringing you down
Sing your pain
It's sad to see this tragedy but I will let this one go
I won't live another lie

Bringing out violence
Singing in silence
Loves a hero it brings you gifts of gold
Then bleeds you sober and I am

I'm bringing you down
Sing your pain
It's sad to see this tragedy but I will let this one go
I won't live another lie
I'm bringing you down
Sing your pain
It's sad to see this tragedy but I will let this one go
I won't live another lie

Just don't let this get the better of you
You will find your way
You and me this isn't over
But you won't find me this time
And I know I can believe my eyes
And I must do this alone
And I said

I'm bringing you down
Sing your pain
It's sad to see this tragedy but I will let this one go
I won't live another lie
And I'm bringing you down
Sing your pain
It's sad to see this tragedy but I will let this one go
I won't live another lie


April

Written By: The Rumours

April
So many faces in the dark
And I don't know where to start
A gallery of scars and a twisted lonely heart
Like a dream this I know
Well everything shows
Things are never what they seem and

Remember last April
We left our souls at the dawn and
It fuels you,
Consumes you,
Anecdotes,
The pills you swallow

It's was only yesterday I saw
The sadness in your eyes and
The terror in your soul
And they say life just isn't fair
But everyone knows it's not your fault
They said

Remember last April
We left our souls at the dawn and
It fuels you,
Consumes you,
Anecdotes,
The pills you swallow

But it was truth
That set you free from me
My darling baby

But it was truth
That set you free from me
My darling baby

Remember last April
We left our souls at the dawn and
It fuels you,
Consumes you,
Anecdotes,
The pills you swallow

Well you know it's the pills you swallow
Don'tcha know it's the pills you swallow
